Remember how Motion City Soundtrack started teasing something major online last week, sending their fans into a frenzy? Well, now we know what they were hinting at.
On Monday (June 17), the Missouri-founded act announced plans to get the “band back together” for a short reunion tour. Dubbed the “Don’t Call it a Comeback 2020” tour, the band’s non-comeback trek will begin with a New Year’s Eve gig at the House of Blues in Chicago.
Following their “hello 2020” gig, the band will embark on a month-long outing across the country in January. The United States-centric tour will include shows in Detroit, Pittsburgh, New York City, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Orlando, Dallas, Denver, Phoenix, and more.
The 20-stop excursion kicks off on Jan. 2, 2020 at the House of Blues in Cleveland and wraps up on Jan. 28, 2020 at the Neptune Theatre in Seattle. The official tour announcement also includes a hometown show in Minneapolis, but the date and the venues have been blurred out.
Tickets for the newly announced shows go on sale this Friday, June 21, on the band’s website.
Last week, the band updated their Twitter account —the first time in months— with the date 12.31.19 and a video. The minute-long video featured the band performing in front of a massive audience. At the end of the clip, the text “12.31.19” and the band’s website appeared on the screen.
We guess that means everything is alright with team Motion City Soundtrack.
